Volunteers are once again needed for the local gathering of the Disabled Surfers Association (Far North Coast), this Saturday December 7 at Clarkes Beach, Byron Bay.

‘Come along for a morning of fun in the surf, taking the local disabled community for a safe water experience,’ DSA media officer Diana Willis said. ‘It can be a most rewarding time, putting smiles on the dials for all concerned.’

‘Each time we visit Byron our numbers grow and our need for volunteers does too.’

Start time for volunteers is 8.30am and rash vests, sun lotion, water and lunch, is provided to all who contribute. Participants start from 10am.
